The Pioneer Inn, in North Central Idaho is on the site of one of the original buildings in the historic gold-rush town of Pierce. Originally built in 1865, the Pioneer Hotel provided the miners with hot meals, warm beds, along with "other" services. The original building was demolished in the early 1900's and the current structure was built, which was also called the Pioneer Hotel.
Since inception, the building has changed ownership and names many times. The most popular and memorable for those raised in Pierce is the Key Bar. Most recently, the building was named the Cedar Inn. In December of 2020, Dan Ebert and Clay Hosley bought the building and are currently working on the reopening of the restaurant. Since early 2020, the Inn has been managed by Beth Pratt.
The Pioneer Inn welcomes you to come enjoy our hospitality, whether you are in-town for hunting our big game, enjoying the 100's of miles of ATV trails, skiing at Bald Mountain, camping or hiking in the Clearwater National Forest, fishing at our reservoirs, or just out for a drive along the Gold Rush Scenic Byway Highway 11.
